How will we document it?
We have invested a bit into recording equipment and figuring out how to do recording properly, just in case some people say, they don't believe us, which can be very common as always every person we speak with about the event, doesn't believe us ;p
1) We have dash (mirror) HD camera with 128GB microSD card, so we will publish entire journey on YouTube.
2) We will do live stream using Samsung Galaxy S7, and UStream app, whenver we have access to the internet (Network 3 with euro add-on).
3) We will record a few short videos using our camcorder.
You can watch the event live! Whenever we have access to the mobile internet.
